The National Health Service was created 75 years ago. Over the decades, it has faced huge pressures – never more so than today.

Yet the NHS and the millions of people who sustain it remain close to all our hearts. From the very beginning, people have come to Britain from all over the world to make this grand vision for a better society a reality. But their vital role has largely been ignored.

This national touring exhibition from the Migration Museum shines a light on the stories and experiences of people who have come to Britain to work in the NHS through photography, film, oral histories and an immersive experience that brings together singing and storytelling. 

The exhibition opens at the Migration Museum Leeds Pop-Up on Friday 10 November 2023 and runs until Sunday 18 February 2024. Click here for directions and more information to help you plan your visit
